Why did you choose PTHA?
I chose PTHA on account of the community we serve! I am passionate about Native health and PTHA provides an amazing array of patient-centered, well-rounded care. PTHA has also fostered a sense of community unlike other programs and I am excited to be a part of it. I plan to pursue a career in this IHS and know that PTHA would be an exceptional preparation for my future. Additionally, I am excited to grow as an osteopath and found the OMM training here to be exceptional. I also can't deny the fact that I am excited to be in the Evergreen state with all of the beautiful nature around. 🙂
What are your interests?
In regards to health and medicine, I am interested in many things. My all-encompassing motivation to empower folks to increase their overall physical, mental, and spiritual health. I am passionate about food, exercise, osteopathic manipulation, herbal & integrative medicine, musculoskeletal/sports medicine, and mental/spiritual health. I also am interested in health policy, particularly matters that pertain to the "upstream" determinants of health, like insurance, employment, access to green areas, and food access. I believe are health is inseparable from our communities and together, we can all support in each other in health.
What are some fun facts about you?
Outside of the clinic and hospital, you can find me outside hiking trails, climbing rocks, dancing to groovy tunes, or simply enjoying some tea and reading a book. I love mushrooms and used to forage in the Appalachian mountains, so any local knowledge on the local mycology will be appreciated! I'm a professionally amateur juggler. I've also traveled to several Latin American countries and love to speak Spanish!
